Air Strike Against Suspected Rocket Pad - IDF

(Best Syndication News) After weeks of warnings, Israel responded to regular rocket attacks from Hamas with a barrage of air strikes (see map and video below). Both Israel and the United States have recommended that Hamas accept the West Bank settlement expansion and human rights violations reported by the United Nations.

"We strongly condemn the repeated rocket and mortar attacks against Israel and hold Hamas responsible for breaking the ceasefire and for the renewal of violence there," U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a statement. Without mentioning the West Bank, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Wednesday "Israel withdrew from Gaza approximately three years ago not in order to return to it.” The rockets have been coming from the Gaza Strip.

(Best Syndication News) The Iraqi government has wanted to prosecute American soldier for years, but now a new pact with the U.S. may allow trials for some crimes. The crimes will be limited to "major and premeditated murders" committed off base by soldiers and contractors.

Several years ago Iraqi authorities were denied the opportunity to prosecute American soliders for rape (see video below). As far back as 2004 Iraqi authorities wanted to put U.S. soldiers on trial for rape and / or murder. They were denied that opportunity and the soldiers are usually tried in the US. This lack of cooperation with the Iraqi justice system has caused a strain in relations between the two countries.

(Best Syndication News) Tensions have risen between the United States and Pakistan after it was learned that President George Bush signed a secret executive order in July giving Special Forces carte blanche power to cross into Pakistan to carry out raids against suspected terror sights. Pakistani soldiers manning a border checkpoint fired on a U.S. helicopter near the Afghan / Pakistan border.

Department of Defense spokesperson Jim Garamone said that the OH-58 Kiowas helicopter did not intrude into Pakistan and was flying in “Afghan airspace.” No one was hurt and the helicopter was not hit, but some fear that this could lead to another US conflict in the region. The Pakistan Newspaper reports that the tensions are “heightened” as the U.S. steps up missile strikes and reports a possible raid into Pakistan earlier this month by special operations forces.
